Active Learning

Do you dream of teaching English in Japan? Passionate about improving community recycling programs? Interested in research that could cure a disease? How about an internship at a professional sporting event?

At Illinois College, our students are achieving all of this and more — before graduation. 

Internships, student-faculty research, service-learning projects and professional practice in your field will prepare you with the skills to succeed in any 21st-century career. 

Active learning experiences have been proven by decades of research to have a strong connection to student learning and retention. These hands-on activities cultivate the traits that today’s employers most value: the abilities to read, write, speak and problem-solve effectively and the power to apply these skills in a professional setting.
